Greenhouse is covered!

Kelsi and I spent most of the day outside working on the greenhouse. We finally have it covered up.
The Sweet Label on the plastic.
We haven't fixed the door yet since we are going to put plexiglass over it instead. That's a project for another day. 
The plastic is more see through than the last. I wonder how that will affect the plant growth? 
All covered up! Feels good. A few final touches are needed but for the most part we are ready to start our greenhouse planting. Tomorrow if it is warm enough in the inside the greenhouse we will get the five greenhouse beds ready for planting. Hopefully we can plant this weekend.

For anyone out there thinking about building a greenhouse, learn from our lesson. Don't buy hardware store plastic. It's worth the extra money in the long haul to just buy the quality plastic. We spent hours last summer patching and re-patching holes that magically appeared. Then we spent hours taking all the brittle plastic off the frame so we can start over. 

Glad to finally have a greenhouse again though. It's one of my favorite places in the whole world.

Thanks for reading
